We went everyday to the Exile to watch the sunset. They provide comfortable chairs, hammocks etc... and cool drinks. The people here make the atmosphere amazing. during sunset they do little djembe performance providing a nice Gili T vibe. on one occassion the djembe drumming evolved into a small beach party.... great bar that attracts the right type of visitors......

Stayed here for 2 days with 11 of my friends. For people from big city looking for perfect getaway, yet only 10 mins away from the island crowd, you're looking at the right place. Beautiful and quiet beach will be your morning view while enjoying your breakfast. Fun and energizing djembe will entertain you during sunset. Make sure you ask... More

Enjoy a cold bintang, juice or wine by watching one of the islands beautiful sunsets. Good live mucic and very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. The Exile Bar offers good Wifi and some chilled seats where you can drift away dreaming, reading or just enjoying the great sunset.

Thank you for the great Djembe drumming whilst we watched the gorgeous sunset. Great spot for a large cold bintang, lovely spring rolls and beautiful view. Really easy to get to, we were staying on main strip and hired bikes and cycled round. Only 10 mins! Best place we visited that side of Gili T!

This idyllic beachfront hideaway is perfect for getting away from the busy strip of Gili T. It has the best sunset view on the island, with beach beanbags and usually live djembe drum soundtrack. The rooms are gorgeous individual thatched wooden huts, with beautiful bathrooms - you can shower looking up at the stars! The staff are friendly and helpful.... More

This place is great for the right people. The exile is for those who come to gili T for the excitement, yet want to get away, love a good djembe session , and think a 10 minute bike ride around an island to get home is a good thing. The guys who work here make it happen. They wait on... More

Amazing place for sunset lovers. Good breakfast and very chilled out staff. Rooms are functional, though a bit small. Very quiet place a few minutes away by bike from the main street and restaurants/ bars/ diving schools.

With affordable price for drinks and very friendly staffs and owner, this place is the best hangout on the island. However, it is pretty far from other places. If you're looking for some place quiet, this is the place for you.
